hurricane katrina under george w. bush, it was an absolute disaster because the guys don't believe in government. so when you put them in charge of government, they do a horrible job. that shouldn't be surprising. now, romney and ryan say oh, no, it's okay. even if we're going to cut it by 40%, a romney-ryan administration will always ensure that disaster funding is there for those in need. period. now, isn't that great? that's just basically the same old romney-ryan lie. i'm going to cut it by 40% but it will be exactly the same. no it won't! you'll cut it by 40%. it will be a disaster, literally! and then we turn to noaa's analysis in 2011 of what the cuts would do. they say without data from the satellite closest to the end of its shelf life, the accuracy of its forecasts for major storms like blizzards and hurricanes would be decreased by approximately 50%. and that's not just hey i can't tell what the weather's going to be like or i can't exactly tell where the storm's going to hit. it has ramifications.
wants to return the rates to. and the 2000s which he did not mention when george bush followed the policies very similar to what mitt romney is proposing, they actually added more than 1 million fewer private sector jobs if george bush's first term than president obama has under his first term so i really do not think that the basic economics or the history says that just going back to deregulation and high rate-- high income rate cuts is the thing that leads to growth. >> brown: and do you think professor -- >> two decades of strong growth, we saw two decade, 80ous and 90s with extraordinary growth. economists called it the great moderation long boom and that's because the stable policies are put in place. tax reform, if you like, of 1986. a bipartisan reform president reagan worked with democrats in congress, that is the kind of thing we nude to get the strong economy back. >> back to you pfessor goolsbee, just this question about -- >> i agree with that i think tax reform and a grand bargain type budget deal if done in a balanced way would be a good achievement for both part
to return the rates to. and the 2000s which he did not mention when george bush followed the policies very similar to what mitt romney is proposing, they brief last word on that? >> well, i think as we are talking about four years what is going to happen the next four years. that say time where a president can make a tremendous difference. and we're talking about the past four years. and the president could have made auch betr policy with the unemployment being so high. >> brown: all right, john taylor and austan goolsbee, thanks so much. >> thank you >> brown: and if you're ready for more analysis on the jobs numbers, you'll find it, as always, on paul solman's "making sense" page online. >> woodruff: still to come on the newshour: misery in the aftermath of the super-storm; civilian deaths in syria; a spotlight on immigration in iowa; plus, shields and brooks. but first, the other news of the day. here's kwame holman. >> holman: the news on bs wasn't enough to lift wall street today. instead, stocks sank on worries that the costs of hurricane sandy will eat into profits. the dow jones in
. and the 2000s which he did not mention when george bush followed the policies very similar to what mitt romney is proposing, theyic if one or e other is elected. >> right. you know, i was in the white house for a while and i used to joke, i crawled all around in the basement, i have yet to find that switch down there that you just flip it and then everything gets better. i think 90 plus percent of what happens in a growing economy has nothing to do with washington. what the president and what washington in general can do is try to set the stage and set a groundwork for policy at could encourage growth. and i think the shorter term that you are thinking about, the less can be done specifically by the president. so if you are asking over a one month or three month period, there's very little the president can do. if you start asking over a five year, ten year period, then the policy decisions they make can influence quite a lot the way things go. >> brown: and john taylor, brief last word on that? >> well, i think as we are talking about four years what is going to happen the next four years. th

obama and under by the way george bush -- it's not obama's bailout even though he pumps his chest and takes the applaud and beatings for it, was created by george w. bush voted in october and december. it was taken over by obama in the meantime. the a bomb administration picking up for bush came up with a deal to save three companies, general motors, chrysler and delphi. what is delphi? delphi is the old telco auto parts division of gm. you know delco batteries. we had gm that desperate to cut off its own parts and set off delphi as a separate company which immediately pretty quickly went bankrupt. well, down went the vulture's and they pick.delphi corp. out of bankruptcy court for 67 cents, a darned good deal for the entire auto parts division of general motors. 67 cents a share. within two years they flipped it. they went public at $22 a share. share. that is it 3200% prophet that they weren't done. they weren't done. delphi had 29 plans in the u.s. and the delphi group sold it back to gm and the rest, every single plant was sold, was sent off to china. every single uaw job, eve
that was think difference between al gore and george w. bush. and if republicans are not going to try to make an issue to try to deelectoralize president obama, then we have a flood here. >> jennifer: all right. thank you so much david. clearly the electoral vote looks great. the popular vote, not so much and especially if these blue voters in new jersey and new york aren't able to get to the polls, that means progressives where every you have got to vote. your vote really does matter why you ask? because the right-wing will fight his agenda at every turn. losing the popular vote gives them actually a shred of legitimacy, a leg to stand on and it's not going to matter to fox news that george bush lost the popular vote back in 2000 so bottom line even if you are in the deepest blue or deepest red, get to the polls! send in your ballots! your vote absolutely matters if you care about the president's ability to carry out his promises in his sec term. coming up bipartisan gets a much-needed shot in the arm. president obama visits new jersey with my new favorite governor, c
romney has adopted policies that are unfortunately to the right of where george bush was on tax policy. he is a more conservative tax policy at this point than george bush did. so that's the choice that people face. it is true. i think people should vote on issues like choice because the reason why we have women engaged so much in this election, is because republicans made issues like contraception controversial. young women who have not been motivated to vote are voting, because they never thought birth control would be a political issue. that happened because republicans attacked it, not democrats. >> i absolutely agree with you on why women matter. that's why we are doing a whole special at 6:00 tonight on exactly this issue of why women matter. coming up, the slow and steady comeback of the u.s. economy. there is some undeniable evidence that there is a roux he coverry. is it enough? what is next? that's what we come back.

. george bush, bill clinton tao too. george w. bush put it in the bowels of the homeland security. then remember what happened with katrina. >> bill: down in san antonio hello, kathy. >> caller: good morning, bill. thank you for giving us a sane alternative. >> bill: to you know what. yes. >> caller: i wanted to say one of the problems was -- >> bill: hey, turn your radio or tv down in the background. >> caller: sorry. >> bill: little distracting. that's it. all right. >> caller: there are problems, situations that are too vast for the states. one being -- which was one i think one of the first accomplishments of the obama administration was the development and the dissemination of the vaccine for that new virus that popped up, h1n1. it killed the group in between and that was an unbelievable accomplishment and the democrats never brag about it. >> bill: i forgot about that. but there are many, many, many roles where things -- look at our federal interstate highway system, right? look at the air traffic air-t
phenomenon that has changed that. he one the state twice. in 2000 it went to george w. bush. kerrey., john care the president got a nine point victory in 2008. we really are tossups state. the polls go back and forth. it is difficult to determine who is going to win this state right now. host: is there early voting and how do the hampshire residents vote on election day? guest: there's not early voting, but there's absentee ballot. you have to sign a form saying you are not going to be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally, the polls are open from about 7:00 until 7:00. some locations are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnouts in the country. other statistical interesting facts are that we are one of the least taxed states in the nation. the least. we have no income tax, no sales tax. the democratic and republican candidates will pledge on that issue, saying they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two gubernatorial candidates right now are both running on that issue. host: neil levesque, about the recount laws in the
the latino community. this is a new phenomenon. george bush acknowledged it. they will have a deep interest in getting that done. the political case, oh, if barack obama is reelected, absolutely not. we are all in agreement. it's the exact same dynamics. i think there's a persuasive case. as a republican, i'm wondering if you think the same thing? >> george w. bush tried to propose bipartisan immigration reform. it was sunk. >> that is just not tree to say it was both parties. labor always opposed these, did the tough thing, bit down, went to their members, members that are suspicious of this and sold them that bill. this is mccain/kennedy. in 2008, when the candidates were running, john mccain took his name off the bill. it's not true it was killed by both parties. >> let's talk about what barack obama has done. he hasn't proposed a plan. one thing that comes out of the book is president obama doesn't enjoy the policy negotiations with congress. itis not his thing. >> why wuld you enjoy that? you would have to be a masochist to enjoy that. >> it's how you pass it. bill clinton did enjoy it
? 50% feel positive. these are the numbers in the same nbc poll from eight years ago when george w. bush won 50 .7% of the vote. that is the parallel of this election. 2004, 2012, incumbent, beleaguered, a close election, ohio decided. -- ohio is at the epicenter today. and that is the story from washington. [laughter] >> thus spaketh -- there is the benediction. >> things are a lot shakier now than they were then, i think that people sense that. how bad does the crisis have to be before congress' response? the wall street crash, going over the cliff? >> romney's numbers on the economy are still better than his. >> slightly. >> the senate -- is it going to go republican, state democratic? >> stay democratic barely. anybody disagree with me? >> kaine and george allen in virginia, who is going to win? >> kaine. >> kaine. >> kaine. >> kaine. that is 8 for kaine. >> massachusetts -- elizabeth warren r. scott brown? >> warren. >> i think warren. >> sharon brown and lh. >> casey in pennsylvania. >> kerrey in nebraska, which nobody would have predicted -- >> kerrey the democrat. medal of
, 800,000 jobs lost. he inherited what george bush and dick cheney gave him. in the four years he's been president, he's made steady improvement. he stabilized the financial system, he saved the automobile industry. he needs another four years in order to make more improvements because there's still lots of improvements that need to be made including more jobs. so let's give him four years rather than go to a man who is so slick that we don't even know from the primaries to now what he stands for. >> colonel wilkerson, in the comment he made, he said when you look at colin powell, there may be other reasons he would support president obama. what does this say about the republican party? isn't this getting to be somewhat of a brand of the republican party? >> i think it was an unfortunate slip of words, but you're insinuating something that is absolutely accurate. my party, unfortunately, is the of those people who are still basing their decision on race. let me be candid. my party is full of racists. the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants president obama out of the whit
it to a cabinet-level agency. it got better. george w. bush demoted in to some sub agency within homeland security and look what happens to new orleans. we are seeing before our very eyes a stark difference between mitt romney saying we should privatize everything including fema and barack obama working with even republican governors like chris christie on a federal relief effort. that's a huge talisman for what you believe the proper role of government is in society and i believe this will show that the president's right and people look at this in ohio and swing states. >> not the only very stark difference between the two of them. the latest obviously being sandy and bringing the attention on romney and fema. he was asked yesterday multiple times what he would do with fema. did not answer. but just a short time ago jeb bush commented on local officials responding to disasters versus national or federal response. i'll play that but i want to play something else first. romney on the campaign trail today trying to transition, rachel, from holding off or holding fires to acknowledging the ongoing ev
how much better i am than george bush. i'm not even president yet. ha ha, ha, ha. >> stephanie: exactly. you know all of the republican governors will be immediately begging for money. i love chris christie. >> yeah. >> stephanie: what did he say? he's so come for thing in times of need. he's like don't be stupid. >> he gave the president kudos. he said the president -- you know if the president didn't cancel his campaign activities, it would have been a huge problem. >> stephanie: does this give the president an opportunity to act presidential? he is presidential! it doesn't give him an opportunity to act presidential like george bush. let's do a photo op ten days after the storm with my -- i'm flying over it and checking out the damage. >> it shows we're workin' hard. it is hard work. >> stephanie: and workin' hard in addition. dana in maryland, you're on "the stephanie miller show." hi dana. >> caller: good morning, everybody. good morning jacki. >> good morning. >> caller: you look beautiful. >> oh
. this was a 40-state landslide for george bush sr. in 1988. in the middle of the country, the sea of red that went blue, iowa, minnesota and wisconsin. there were local factors in the upper midwest. the farm economy collapsed in the mid-1980s and raeagan's standing was lower than it was elsewhere. republicans were push punished there for the state of economy. think about the auto bailout and the lower unemployment rate there, and i think there is a reward for obama for the sense among those voters that things are getting a little better here than maybe they otherwise would be. >> in a state that feels like it has not been than the country economically for a while, and you cannot understate how important the auto bailout political dynamic has been there. last week after she squabbled over exactly what romney said about the bailout in his op-ed, that was the most viewed "new york times" op-ed. the romney campaign is trying to project strength in ohio. john kasich came out and said romney will win ohio, but the tactics really speak and are telling a different story. they released an ad that
counties in the nation to vote for george bush in 2004 and then switch to barack obama in 2008. brown county was one of them. but then it swung back to republican scott walker for governor in 2010. the question is what next? st. norbert college political scientist wendy scattergood says that even in a deeply divided electorate, the wisconsin tradition of tough-minded independent voters is alive and well. >> they tend to be moderates. they do want to see bi- partisanship. they want to see people working together. and so when they get really frustrated or if their perception is that either on the right of the left that they're moving too far to the extreme, they throw them out of office. but having done that only two years ago it wouldn't surprise you that this state could flip again? yeah, absolutely. we have a tradition of being very, very closely matched between democrats and republicans, so those independents can make all the difference. >> you can canvass, phone, input data, whatever you want. >> reporter: how many persuadables are there? that's also being pursued by some major no
related to how they perceived their significance. so, for example, george bush actually allocated michael brown who was the former -- i just had to read this out, because i was just blown away. michael brown who was the former commissioner of judges and stewards for the international arabian horse association, that's who headed fema. clinton was the first -- was the first president to allocate the fema head who actually had experience -- >> disaster. >> -- disaster management. it's not political. it's about poverty. it's about race. and when we think about disaster preparedness as well as recovery, the ways in which these two americas break down, you see that again and again and again. >> it's also i think the other point here is that it's something that will happen i think often is people on the left we get into this defensive crouch around the role of government and so we defend the states' actions in the abstract, but if you talk to lefty activist who are part of common ground and katrina it was government bureaucracy who was their enemy. and folks on staten island are frustrated and a
at the execution of a package initiated by george w. bush in the last days of his time in office. imagine getting in a time machine and going back to the mall in 2009 and telling people in a crowd of more than 1 million, the man about to get sworn in would see his re-election hinged on the pack onlg of loans the bush administration authorized. there's no way they would believe you. the reason for this strange state of affairs is the electoral college, a small category of swing states and a vast wasteland of states where they do not. we have become so accustoms to it, we don't think it's strange. of course it played out well in the swing state of ohio. it should. 160,000 jobs in ohio are no more important than 160,000 jobs in alabama or california. they are more important under our current political system. in fact, i like to imagine what politics would look like if there was no electoral college and the votes in my people of the bronx. the bronx is 1.4 million residents, more than 11 entire states. no presidential candidate there cares about what people think. it's safely blue. if they did, they
prediction? >> absolutely. and frankly, a lot of analysts agree with that. if you look at what of george bush's own pollsters said when he was president and running was that no republican can actually get to the white house with at least 40% of the hispanic vote. this was in 2004. imagine that percentage has had to have gone up just a little bit given the expanded population of hispanic voters. and right now, you have mitt romney at less than 25% nationally, and less than 25% in each of the key swing states that had large hispanic populations. like nevada, like colorado, like florida. so i think they should be very worried when it comes to these battleground states, and even in ohio, where you have 166,000 registered latino voters going out to the polls, and an election this tight, they could absolutely be the deciding factor. i think it's going to be the october surprise of this election. >> i thought we already had one of those. >> early november. >> let me ask you, because we were asking our viewers before the break, if you could run the campaign in the last three days, what would you do i
tonight in nate silver's calculations to 78.4%. and finally, george w. bush has entered the presidential campaign. he did that today when he was dragged into it by his little brother in florida. >> do you honestly think that this president is capable of bringing people together? his entire strategy is to blame others. starting with my brother, of course. basically, he blames every possible thing, rather than having the humility to be able to reach out and define common ground. >> and the fight over who is the real friend of the auto industry continued today. >> the facts, they speak for themselves. president obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy. taxpayers still stand to lose $25 billion from the president's politically managed bankruptcy. these companies, chrysler in particular, we know their story, are now choosing to expand manufacturing overseas. these are the facts. >> remember the president talked about romnesia? well, it's contagious. congressman ryan. congressman ryan's caught it. let me tell you the facts. congressman ryan voted with us. he voted in the congress with us. >>
was nearly destroyed under the irresponsibility and neglect of george w. bush, could we be forgiven for concluding that republicans, can they be trusted on this issue? >> it doesn't seem like we can. sequestration will cut fema another 8%. remember, the republicans kind of led the charge with sequestrati sequestration. there are so many challenges for us to consider. we talk about october surprises. it's really unique to have a national natural disaster as an october surprise because i think it should open people's mites up to what the folk on the right have been talking about about gutting government and privatizing everything. you can't privatize disaster relief. we know about all the scams. you need the government to coordinate across the states. you can sakic it back to the states but we need coordination across the states for this kind of relief effort and also, martin, finally here, in the absence of any kind of government intervention with respect to climate change, to go on the other end of that and then to also say we want to cut and demolish fema is absolutely absurd. we n
on the presidential election. caller: george w. bush -- i worked with him from 2000 to to 2005. i changed to be an independent. and then i changed. but now obama -- he has too many good things going for him. he made some serious mistakes. but he has too many good things going for him. i will vote for him. if i can vote. our elections in this building, there's no electricity. if i can, i will vote for obama. host: james from new jersey. i want to bring in another new jersey congressman, congressman,. . our last caller brought up a concern about voting on tuesday. well but be a problem? guest: it may be a problem in the sense of people being able to access a polling place. now, every authority whether it is the governor or the county clerk's -- they assured us that there will be places to vote. but if we have places to vote that are significantly distant from where people traditionally do vote, or where there is an access problem -- that does pose a problem. we have to make sure that there is a polling place that is operational, and in a reasonable location for people to vote. you cannot te
irony of this man's claim, isn't it? >> a couple years ago when george w. bush is being blamed for a weak economy, nothing like the one he bequeathed to president obama, romney said it is ridiculous to blame a president for a weak economy given that he came in during a recession. i mean, what was president bush supposed to do? recession began a little after he came in. of course it wasn't his fault. when he was president -- or when he was governor, i'm sorry, he said the fact that they didn't have very good job growth in the first 11 months of his term couldn't be blamed on him. he had just gotten into office. and then under obama if you wipe out the first year of his term, which, of course, was a huge, huge drop in the global economy which nobody seriously blames on him, yeah, things look a lot better. romney has had to jettison a series of very, very sober analyses of the role that the executives actually play in economic growth in order to make these arguments. so, yeah, they shift will you the bigger problem is they're just fundamentally wrong. >> right. now, you have a pos
